My links of the week – January 19, 2014

Here are my choice of links for the past week.

  • Web Design and Development:
    • Jon Galloway’s ASP.NET – A last look back at 2013, looking ahead to 2014 is a good overview of what happened with ASP.NET during 2013 and what to expect in 2014, with links to many resources relevant for those who work with ASP.NET.
    • Shawn Wildermuth’s Why Should You Care About NodeJS? explains what .NET developers can learn from NodeJS and why they should have  a look at it and consider using it in some projects.
    • Steve Hansen’s HTML5: Myths and misconceptions provides a bit of history on HTML 5 and tries to debunk some of the rising myths about what it is and what it offers.
    • Jonathan Cutrell’s Web Design 2014: What to Watch Out For makes some predictions on what to expect on the field of web design, for 2014.
    • Pete Hodgson’s Keeping jQuery in Check proposes a segregated DOM to avoid the pitfalls of what the author describes as ‘jQuery soup’, an indiscriminate intermingling of $ references, AJax calls, application logic and business rules.

That’s it for this week. Thanks for reading.
